They were taken into in custody and questioned about the incident.
Police in East Cleveland have reassured residents after dealing with several incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area.
Posting on their Facebook page, officers from the Guisborough area Neighbourhood Policing Team say that Police Community Support Officers are patrolling on an evening in and around the area, anti-social behaviour issues are being monitored and anyone causing any upset in the neighbourhood will be dealt with.
Anyone who wants to report a crime is advised to ring the non-emergency number 101.
Locke Park in Redcar is hosting a special milestone today as the 300th parkrun takes place.
The first run took place on Saturday 28 April, 2012, with a total of 91 runners turning up to complete the course.
Now, an average of 200 people turn out for the weekly run.
The parkrun began after Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council worked with Graham Hall, the Chairman of New Marske Harriers, the Bowls Club and Friends of Locke Park to make improvements to the park to create the perfect location for a parkrun back in 2012.
Speaking to Zetland FM, Graham said that he hopes that the parkrun continues to grow.
